APDT – Association of Pet Dog Trainers

Over the last year, I have been working hard on my dog training qualifications, and am proud to say I have now passed all my theory and completed the classroom elements, and am now awaiting a full assessment in July.

I have now full Student membership and am fully able to teach all range of dogs and owners basic commands, behaviours and general good manners in both a 1-2-1 and full class situations.

Full membership will be given when I pass my assessment and more theory homework to be submitted early 2020, with assessment date booked for July 2020.

Classes will be starting soon!

Happy days, Happy dogs, Happy owners.

More Qualifications!!

I am so pleased to announce that I have now graduated to P2 TTouch practitioner.

This recognises my experience with TTouch, through workshops, ongoing training and continued development.

I am now able to teach 2-day workshops if I wish… watch this space !

Labels and Intention

At one of my successful workshops this year (2014), we talked about ‘labels’ we use on our dogs e.g. my dog is ‘naughty‘ or she is ‘my poor rescue’.  When we attach emotions and negative words to describe our animals we see them imperfect or having problems.  They may not be the perfect beings we imagined or are striving for, but how about we call them ‘challenging and in-training’ or ‘my new best friend’ . When we think and talk of them negatively we put that emotion down the lead and reinforce feelings we don’t actually want to encourage.  So give your loved companions a pat on the back, imagine them as you want them to be, and strive forward with perfect intentions and help your animal be the best they can be, they will follow your lead – literally!
